Samsung Galaxy Note 6 rumors: specs may include 6GB RAM, 'Slim RGB AMOLED'


The rumor mill is already hot because of Samsung’s next flagship phablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 6. Early rumors about the device point out to major upgrades to hardware properties that, if proven to be true, would open new standards on mobile devices.

According to a report by Sam Mobile, a post on Chinese social media site Weibo tipped that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 flagship phablet would be coming with a certain type of display technology called a “Slim RGB” AMOLED. The display is said to measure 5.8 inches. Samsung, in the past, attempted to incorporate the RGB technology on their AMOLED displays, but the move was taken back, since the company noted that the RGB AMOLED do not last as long as other technologies.

Additionally, the Galaxy note 6 is expected to become the first mobile device to sport a massive 6GB worth of RAM inside it. As of now, smartphones and mobile device only have 4 GB worth of RAM as the highest memory capacity. While the idea of a 6GB RAM may sound like an overkill to some, Samsung had been gearing itself up for this, ever since the company’s announcement that it had gone into mass production of 12 Gb LPDDR4 chips last year. Having four of these new and advanced chip in a device would allow it to have up to 6GB RAM.

As for the “Slim” display part, it appears that Samsung would be making the device display slimmer than ever, which could give more space for other hardware of the device, such as the possibility of having a bigger battery. A slimmer display bezel is expected, too. Also, the tip said that the Galaxy Note 6 display would have 1,024 pressure points, whereas the Note 5 had 2,048 pressure points on its display.

Other specifications tipped include two variants of 64GB and 128GB worth of internal storage, a 12-megapixel main rear camera with Super OIS technology, and variants of two different chipsets.
